This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park Thailand

This is the tour program that will bring all participants to the true nature and the island within the Phang Nga Bay. The interesting place is the Tapu island (JAMES BOND ISLAND). . The Tapu island or “James Bond Island” is the giant standing rock sitting in the middle of the sea at the area of the front bay near to the Pingkan mountain. Looking from the far, this rock looks like a giant nail, nailing deep into the seawater. This Tapu island is the very famous tourist spot in Phang Nga. Its beauty brought the Hollywood to film their James Bond movie. The Man with the Golden Gun episode here. That is why it got the nickname of “James Bond Island”, where draws in several tours. This is one of the most famous tourist spot in the world that many tourist come to visit. In addition to the Tapu island and the Panyee island, there are many interesting spots for tourist in Phang Nga Bay such as Maju mountain, grotto , Panak island, Hong island and Ping Kan island. However, the cruise along the Tapu island has been enforcing some restrictions from the official government. They prohibit the tourists to look too closely at the island because the sunk part of this island is very old where eroded for ages. This eroding rock may cause accident at any point in time.

Koh Panak (Panak Island)Located southwest of Koh Hong where many caves and inner sea are around the island. Some caves can be reach by kayaking while some have very high entrance that tourists need to climb up. The inner sea will be seen from the cave entrance. The favorite attractions are Khang Khao Cave, Ice Cream Cave and Gong Gang Cave. Koh Panak has wonderful scenery around the island, the cliffs and strange beautiful stalactites almost the same as Koh Hong.

The little natural wonder makes it even more spectacular is Koh Hong (Hong Island , Phang Nga Bay), a limestone island with the bay almost surrounded by the cliff looking like the hall where boats can sail into the cave channel through the other side of the sea. But due to the low cave roof, only kayaks can get through the channel. When the tides allow to, one can enter inside the Hong Island by canoe. The area is also good for swimming.

I thought the tour was beautiful. The pickup worked great and the guides spoke good English. The stops are breathtaking and really worthwhile (but only in good weather, so sun and a few clouds). I really can only recommend the tour. Best for someone who does not have much time.
